Shock Carman loss leads to Commonwealth heavyweight title mandatory shake-up

WBN 02/12/2017

In the latest Commonwealth Boxing Council bulletin, Lenroy Thomas was informed he will no longer be able to defend his heavyweight title against Dave Allen next.

The pair were set to face-off in a rematch in October until the fight was rescheduled for the December 17 David Haye v Tony Bellew card only for the event to be delayed further.

Due to Commonwealth rules, Thomas was ordered to follow through with a mandatory defence against Canadian Dillon Carman.

Carman suffered a shock loss to undefeated Mladen Miljas on Friday night in Niagara Falls and has now been removed from the mandatory position.

Hon Secretary Simon Block stated the CBC would now access the situation before making a new announcement.

Below is the rest of the CBC’s latest bulletin.

Full details of purse bid terms and procedure will be circulated in good time prior to the date of submission.
